38^ Lovers Film Festival


by Marco Berger
Country: Argentina
Year: 2022
Duration: 102'

Artur invites some friends to his luxurious villa for Christmas. Their days go by swimming, sunbathing, with jokes, games, drugs and alcohol. There is a lot of companionship, but the joyful camaraderie is often tinged with an oppressive machismo: gratuitous comments, homophobic jokes... and a feeling of something more. Something they can't fully accept and that must be kept hidden. Marco Berger is back, after the movie Taekwondo (2016). Through his unashamed voyeurism and keen gaze, he describes the interactions of a group of allegedly straight men, often problematic and unresolved.
